The 2nd edition of Research.com ranking of the best universities in the field
of Ecology and Evolution relies os data derived from
various data sources including OpenAlex and CrossRef. The bibliometric data for
estimating the citation-based metrics were acquired on 21-12-2022.
Position in the ranking is based on a sum of D-indexes (Discipline H-index) of all ranking
researcher’s affiliated with a given institution. D-index
only includes papers and citation
metrics for an examined discipline.
The focus of our Ecology and Evolution research
Our best universities ranking is a reliable lineup of leading researchers from the area of Ecology and Evolution , based on a meticulous analysis of 166,880 researchers determined from multiple bibliometric data sources. For the area of Ecology and Evolution, over 11774 scholars were analysed.
What is D-index inclusion threshold for Ecology and Evolution
The D-index threshold for approving a scholar to be examined is placed at 30 if most of their publications are in the discipline of Ecology and Evolution. The inclusion factors for scientists to be considered into the ranking of top scholars are based on the D-index, proportion of the contributions made within the specific field of study as well as the awards and achievements of the researchers. The D-index threshold for including leading scientists is set as an increment of 10 depending on the overall number of scientists assessed for each scientific field whilst guaranteeing that the top 1% of best scholars are added into the list. There should be a proximity of 30% or less between a scholar’s general H-index and their D-index.
Other verification practices
As our primary goal is to make sure that only actual scholars are mentioned in Research.com ranking we are aware that metrics are never supposed to be an absolute means to evaluate the work of scholars. Because of that we manually inspect each profile and cross-correlate it against publications in a wide range of reliable sources. Even though it’s not a element defining a scholar’s position in the ranking, the amount of papers published in well-known journals and conference proceedings should be a valuable secondary indication of their contribution to research in a given field of study. Position in the ranking is determined by each scholar’s D-index according to data compiled from OpenAlex and CrossRef, which are the most trustworthy and well-established bibliometric databases of this type accessible to the scientific community. A thorough overview of our research procedures can be found on our methodology page.
Our objective is to inspire scholars, entrepreneurs and administrative bodies worldwide to examine where prominent experts are heading and to give an opportunity for the whole research community to find out who the leading experts in specific disciplines, in different countries, or even within research institutions are.
